shift that is part of intel. you go for ibm, which is one of the old plays in technology. why are they poised to take advantage of this major tectonic shift? >> don't forget that ibm as recently as five or six months ago made a big play in selling corporate bonds. a two year note at a very low interest rate. 1%. they are taking these billion dollars to take advantage of this. that is why i like them. they are a major conglomerate. i think the business model is actually pretty solid. i also believe that they derive their income from all over the world. which is a little safer vintage. that is why i like ibm. they do pay pretty attractive dividends and i think that puts a little bit more on it. at this price point, i actually like it a lot speech you buy the best when they are depressed. we love out here. liz: when companies make deals, you could make big money. the stock prices of acquiring companies rise more than 6% in just five days following the deal. do you want to be an early? we are breaking down how to do that in key areas. >> a very important segment. and both sides of
